This season has gotten off to a pretty good start. We won our first game against Roosevelt, which was a very fun game. It came down to the wire, but we got it done. Then we played Charter Oak and I didn’t think it was the way we wanted it to go. We came out hard and we were winning in the first half. We just came out flat the second half. I thought I played well in both games, with no sacks given up in either games and quite a few pancakes (putting players on their backs).
School is going great and just getting back into the routine of classes can be a struggle. Overall it is still pretty easy, but I’m ready to face any challenges in the classroom just like on the field.
To all the young football players out there, I would say just to live your dreams. Go above and beyond! What ever work you put in, is the work you’ll get out!
See You Next Month,
